The IRS Form 8453-EX is also known as the Excise Tax Declaration for an IRS E-Filed Return.  The IRS Form 8453-EX is a declaration by a taxpayer to authenticate an electronic Form 2290 and authorize an intermediate to transmit your return using a third party transmitter.  Simply put, this form is filed if you use a tax preparer to E-File the Form 2290 on  your behalf.

A taxpayer E-Filing directly with ExpressTruckTax is not required to file a Form 8453-EX. However, if an accountant or other service provider files on your behalf, you are required to sign an 8453-EX to authorize the transmission. The 8453-EX will be E-Filed along with your Form 2290.

What is an Agricultural Vehicle?

0

An agricultural vehicle is any highway motor vehicle that is:
  • Used (or expected to be used) primarily for farming purposes, and
  • Registered (under state laws) as a highway motor vehicle used for farming purpose for the entire period.
A vehicle is used primarily for farming purposes if more than half of the vehicle’s use (based on mileage) during the period is for farming purposes.

A special tag or license plate identifying the vehicle as used for farming is not required for it to be considered an agricultural vehicle.

Any agricultural vehicle traveling 7500 miles or less during the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax period, is considered a suspended or Category W vehicle and no tax is due.

How Soon Can I Get My Stamped Schedule 1?

0


 

The Stamped Schedule 1 is required in order to register a vehicle. If you mail the Form 2290 to the IRS, it can take 4-6 weeks before it is processed.  If you choose to physically take to the IRS, the nearest office may be many miles away. There can also be very long waiting period at the IRS office of up to several hours.

ExpressTruckTax is the solution to E-File IRS Form 2290 and get your stamped Schedule 1 as simply and quickly as possible. Once you transmit your return to the IRS, it takes only minutes to receive your IRS stamped Form 2290 Schedule 1.

ExpressTruckTax sends the Stamped Schedule 1 to the taxpayer as a pdf attachment. Although the form will not be physically stamped, the official E-File watermark serves as an official IRS stamp.

EIN is Required to File Form 2290

0

The IRS requires ANY taxpayer filing a Form 2290 to use an EIN or Employer Identification Number when filing. The IRS expressly prohibits the use of social security numbers for the filing of 2290.

We receive many questions from taxpayers who believe they're not a business - simply a driver. In these cases, you still need to have a business such as a sole proprietorship.

To get an  Employer Identification Number from the IRS, you can follow one of the following options:

a. Apply Online: The customer can obtain an EIN immediately by visiting IRS Online EIN application
b. Apply over the phone: Taxpayers can obtain an EIN immediately by calling the Business & Specialty Tax Line at (800) 829-4933. The hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday. An assistor takes the information, assigns the EIN, and provides the number to an authorized individual over the telephone. Note: International applicants must call (215) 516-6999 (Not a toll-free number).
c. Apply Fax: Fax the completed form SS-4 to IRS. If you provide a return fax number, IRS will send a fax to that number within 4 days with a new EIN.
d. Apply through Paid Provider: You can use a CPA or a process agent, like Truck Services of North America and let them take care of preparing and filing the return for you.
e. Apply by Mail: This is the slowest way to get the EIN number. mail the completed Form SS-4 to the IRS. The address is listed on the form itself. This could take up to 4 weeks to get the EIN number.

NOTE: Remember, the due date to file your Form 2290 for vehicles first placed on public highways in November is December 31, 2013. While you can get your EIN immediately, it can take the IRS up to 10 business days to update new EINs into their system. You cannot E-File your Form 2290 until your EIN is is the system, so you will want to get your EIN today to ensure you can file by the deadline!  

Once your EIN is in the IRS system or if you already have one, you can file your Form 2290 return and receive your Stamped Schedule 1 within minutes at ExpressTruckTax. To E-File Form 2290 online now, go to ExpressTruckTax.com or contact our Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 704-234-6005 or email us at support@ExpressTruckTax.com.  We have Spanish Support too!
